Hope you are feeling like hearing a fairy tale...
Once upon a time there were three billy goats that thought the grass looked greener on the other side of the stream, and the name of all three was "Gruff." Under the bridge that they had to cross, lived a great, ugly troll with eyes as big as saucers and a nose that was long as a poker.
So first of all came the youngest Billy Goat Gruff, "trip, trap, trip, trap!" over the bridge. "Who's that tripping over my bridge?" roared the troll, "I'm coming to gobble you up." The Billy Goat said, "It's only I the tiniest Billy Goat Gruff. Wait for Second Billy Goat Gruff - He's much bigger."
"Trip, trap, trip, trap," came Second Billy Goat Gruff over the bridge. "Now I'm coming to gobble you up!" roared the troll.
"Oh, no. Don't eat me. Wait a little until the Big Billy Goat Gruff comes along. He's much bigger."
Just then up came Big Billy Goat Gruff.
"Who's that tramping over my bridge?" roared the troll. Big Billy Goat Gruff said, "It is I! The Big Billy Goat Gruff!" "Now I'm coming to gobble you up!" roared the troll.
"Well, come try, and I'll crush you to bits, body and bones!" said the Big Billy Goat Gruff. And that is just what he did. Then all the Billy Goats Gruff ate green grass happily ever after on the other side of the stream.
